Musikfest is 10 days of non-stop music on 13 different stages in the heart of Bethlehem, PA. Over two decades have passed since the first Musikfest. And from those humble beginnings, the event has blossomed into a musical spectacular that attracts more than one million people from throughout the country. The festival, which showcases nearly every musical style imaginable, features:

  • More than 300 performers from across the country and around the globe. There are at least 30 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists. Selected artists will be compensated for their performances - compensation TBD.
  • Musical programming at 13 different indoor and outdoor stages.
  • 10 great nights of headline entertainment.
  • Mouth-watering foods, plenty of children’s fun and activities and a spectacular closing-night fireworks display.
